    Whining noise from engine

    Just recently heard a whining noise coming from the engine, it's identical to the sound of a remote-controlled car, it gets progressively louder and higher pitched the higher the revs are, till near top end when I can't hear it for the engine. Only happens when in gear, 1,2,3,4 but 5th I'm hard pushed to hear it.

    When I reversed into the drive just now it was an arsehole to get out of reverse, wouldn't budge. Couldn't say if it whines in reverse as it does naturally anyway.

    What could it be?

    Does the noise change when you press the clutch in? If so I would say its the release bearing that has failed.

    No, only happens when in gear. Neutral there's no noise, neutral revving there's no noise, in gear with clutch down is no noise, in gear with clutch down and revving there's no noise.

    Made a quick vid here:

    On reading up I see it could either be input shaft bearings or clutch release bearings...

    Like I said does it change when you press the clutch in.

    And you answered yea it does it goes away when you press the clutch in.

    Like I said release bearing has failed. New clutch and bearing and you should be fine
